Two vehicles collided Friday evening on the 7000 block of West Third St. The pick up in the accident was hauling blacktop sealant.

UPDATE @ 9:08 p.m.: Two people have been taken to Miami Valley Hospital from a head-on collision in Trotwood that will keep West Third Street shut down for up to two hours.

The victims are males. One was driving a large pickup truck hauling blacktop sealant and the other was operating a small sedan that apparently crossed the center line in the 7400 block.

A Trotwood fire official tells us the truck was carrying several buckets and two 55-gallon tanks of sealant, which was spilled onto the roadway. The driver was semi-conscious when he was extricated from the wreckage, but the driver of the sedan appears to have suffered serious injuries.
